About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Additional housing options available

Come stay with us at Hawaiian Style Vacation Rentals. Experience real Hawaii away from the city and nestled in Kona Coffee country. Wake up to gentle trade winds, birds singing and 100% Kona coffee grown on our farm. Stay in your own secluded Tree Top apartment. Lounge on your lanai or swim in the ocean with dolphins and sea turtles.

We are located just 15 miles south of sunny Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, only minutes from one of the world's best snorkel and shore dive sites, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau, the Place of Refuge. Our farm is a great base from which to explore the Kona Coast as well as Volcanoes National Park. To view our availability calendar as well as to find more information on our rental, scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on the link under 'Links to more information'.

We grow 100% Kona coffee on our farm. We have several orchards organized in rows on the hill side as well as several plantings in the shade of tall macadamia nut trees. Our farm is lined with nearly 200 macadamia nut trees that provide us with a bountiful harvest. In addition to the coffee and nuts, we have many varieties of fruit trees.

We have Golden Globe mangos, Hayden mangos, papayas, pineapples, guava, passionfruit, lychee, cherimoya, soursop, lime, sour orange, pomegranate, avocado, bananas, figs, coconuts, monstera, rose apples, custard apples and noni. We also grow cocoa and kukui nut. Our farm features unique lava rock out croppings as well as beautiful varieties of palm trees and flowers.

Every guest is treated to a tour of the farm. We will show you how we process the coffee and care for the trees. When you arrive, you will have a bouquet of freshly picked flowers as well as an assortment of in season fruits from our farm.

The Tree Top Apartment is a private second floor apartment with ocean and mountain views. The apartment is completely separate and private from the owner's home. The cathedral ceilings, sky light, stained glass window and sliding glass door to the lanai invite in the sun and outdoors to the apartment. At approximately 750 square feet, the apartment accommodates four people. Our farm is at a comfortable 1000 foot elevation so air conditioning is not needed. We are blessed with warm sunny days and evenings perfect for sleeping.

There is a master bedroom with a queen bed and a second bedroom with two twin beds. The two bedrooms and the kitchen have ceiling fans. The living room has a TV, DVD player, VCR and CD player. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals while you are in paradise. We have dedicated wireless high speed internet access. You have easy parking next to your own private entrance. We also have boogie boards, umbrellas and beach chairs for you to borrow.

About The Owner

Originally from Nazareth, Pennsylvania, we moved to the Big Island to live our dream of owning a coffee farm and vacation rental. We first visited Hawaii while on our honeymoon. Like most people, we fell in love with the islands and dreamed of living in paradise. For two of our visits to the Big Island, we stayed at the farm. It was our ideal home in Hawaii. We could farm coffee and macadamia nuts and run a vacation rental. When we came to the Big Island to find a place to live, we booked a rental on the farm that would become our home. We hoped to find a house to rent, but would have been happy with a condo that had a lanai for us to spend time outside. We were so excited when the owner told us he was looking to sell the farm. We knew then that is was meant to be.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose Hawaii

We chose to buy our Kona coffee farm in Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii for many reasons: perfect weather, gorgeous ocean, beautiful landscape, breathtaking sunsets, happy, friendly people. ALOHA SPIRIT

We had to leave after 1 night

  • 1 of 5

We were met by Todd who was very nice and accommodating! Our issue was his driveway, which he described as not the best. I had rented a midsize car, Hyundai Elantra which hit bottom on several times while driving down the driveway. I wish he would of indicted we would need a higher clearance vehicle. I'm used to driving in rough terrain, but could not afford to damage a vehicle, especially a rented one. We decided to find a different place to stay since we could not go in and out safely. The area is not lit at night. This would be ok to stay if you had a jeep. There was no lock on the front door, however, I think it would be hard for someone to find this place. Todd was nice but it was a terrible experience for us as we wanted a place to go in and out of, and were not able to do that here. Todd said the rental places did not check the bottoms of the cars. We were given no refund. I believe the situation could of been avoided if Todd would of said the vehicle would need a specific clearance! Besides losing the cost of the VRBO, I could of been paying damages for rental car, and miss even seeing this wonderful island!

I just found out that we were refunded some of our money, which I felt was very appropriate. We bid stay 1 night and were given a nice tour of the farm!

Owner's Response: We were sorry to lose Pam and her Granddaughter as guests. Pam did not have to leave, Pam chose to leave after one night without giving us a chance to address her concerns or find alternative solutions. Upon arriving after a long flight many guests may be stressed. Then to arrive at the luggage carousel and not have your luggage show up, increases stress. After filling out paperwork for the luggage, then standing in the long holiday lines at the rental car agency, most people have had enough. This is what occurred to Pam. Pam arrived with a stressed look about her, but I did my best to smile and help her relax. She scheduled a tour of the farm the next morning. We provided the farm tour which she enjoyed and never mentioned that she wanted a key for the door. Nor was I told that her rental vehicle was preventing her from staying at my property and she needed to stay somewhere else. After our tour of the farm, she left our property in the early am, we received a text late in the afternoon stating she left, why and that she wanted a refund. As for the driveway issue, we are not able to recommend a car clearance height. We always tell guests that convertible Mustangs are best avoided, but we cant determine what height your car will clear. The weight of the people and the items in your car will alter the clearance.We described our farm and farm driveway in many emails to Pam. It was even reiterated in a pre-stay phone call.It is rocky with some potholes which are avoidable. You go slow and there is no problem. We have been running our rental for more than 12 years and have never had any guest who could not safely navigate our driveway. Please reference review...Jan 15, 2012 Pam could have explored the option of getting a different vehicle from the rental car agency. Pam booked via VRBO on which our refund policy is clearly stated . Pam checked in Christmas week, stayed a night and then wanted a refund after leaving . We confirmed with VRBO that we are in no way required to refund ANY money, but we did. Making our guests happy and comfortable is very important to us. We would not open up our home to guests if we didn't care what they thought or didn't care about their stay. Pam did not give us the opportunity to alleviate her problem. It is important to know yourself and what will make your Hawaiian vacation meet your expectations. If a farm is is not for you, then select a more suitable accommodation to your tastes and abilities.

A taste of life on a small farm in rural South Kona

  • 4 of 5

The "tree house" apartment was an enjoyable place to base our Kona area adventures, away from the noise and crowds of the Kailua area. We enjoyed the spacious lanai, sounds of cocqui frogs at night and roosters in the morning. The kitchen was well-stocked, the bathroom and bedroom had all that we needed. The tour of the farm was cool and we enjoyed the fresh papaya and samples of Todd's own coffee beans. The interior was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the privacy of the upper apartment, although I did not realize that the lower half of the building was also a guest rental - the folks staying there were up slamming doors at dawn and in general we would have liked not to have other guests so close. The driveway is 1/4 mile long and very bumpy, not good to drive without 4WD. The neighbors dogs did bark very loudly if they heard a disturbance even at night which interrupted our rest on a couple of occasions. There is TV and WiFi, some DVDs, and books for evening entertainment. For those who want to be out in the country and closer to Kealekekua Bay and Place of Refuge but further from Kailua town, this a good spot. Just 3-4 miles from the Coffee Shack for a nice breakfast and stellar view.

Owner's Response: We were very pleased to have Lindsay stay with us. We are troubled to hear in a post stay review of issues with your stay. If we would have been alerted of these concerns at the time of your stay, we would have done our best to address the items. Our downstairs apartment is not a rental. We only have friends and family stay which happens infrequently. We have gone years without a downstairs visitor. Our parents who we have not seen in nearly two years were staying there. Our two daughters who have not seen their grandparents in years slept over night. They need to get up for school which is most likely what was causing the morning activity between 6 and 7 am. We are a working Kona coffee farms surrounded by other working Kona coffee farms. It is important for guests to know what they want out of their Hawaiian vacation. A farm experience is not for everyone. There are animals and work noises. We love our farm and our home and work hard to share an authentic Hawaiian farm life experience with guests.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

House Is clean and comfortable. I appreciate the stainless steel pots and pans. The fruits were perhaps not abundant when we came, but there were two ok papayas in the kitchen on arrival. The host is friendly and gave an enjoyable tour of their property. The dogs are nice and mellow. The driveway was manageable once we figured out how to navigate the rough spots, before that we scraped the bottom of our vehicle a couple times, even going slowly.

all what it is described. spacious, clean, comfotable upper level house to yourself.

  • 4 of 5

Todd greated and welcomed us. He made sure everything was ok. A bowl of fruit was waiting for us and most condiments available in a very well provided kitchen. Easy to find using the directions. You have the unit to yourself. The main house is a way away. This is not a 5 star establishment, but it is clean and comfortable. The road down to the farm and the farm itself is best described as rustic as are most of these small old Kona coffee holdings in the area seem to be. It probally wont be long before the large corps start cobbling them up.

Great home base

  • 4 of 5

My family (2 middle aged parents & college aged daughter) stayed in the treetop apartment for a week and it was amazing. Comfortable beds, beautiful surroundings, fully stocked kitchen and use of a grill steps away, as well as all the other amenities noted elsewhere. Todd was very helpful, kind, and gave us a real sense of what it means to live on the big island. We definitely would stay here again!
